    So here's a question: Would it make sense to have an Upcoming Events thread in each regional subforum (Beer Travel & Events\Great Lakes\Upcoming Events) for industry folks like myself to put stuff in? I'd like to be able to promote some stuff we do but i find it cluttering to make a new thread for each event, so i don't do that.

    I think in this case you would start a thread about your place with "upcoming events" in the title. No way it doesn't devolve into a constant conversation on this site though.

    Well I don't think it should just be my place though. That's why an Upcoming Events thread is better, so all of us can share upcoming stuff.

    Maybe just put it in the FIB thread? I don't know. beeraficionado does a pretty good job getting the word out about Rev stuff in there.

    I think an additional thread would just turn into a second FIB War Room.

    It seems like each event should have its own thread.

    I think each regional subforum pretty much serves as an upcoming events collection. Whatever brewery / store / city thread is the most active at the moment likely has an upcoming or current event happening.
